About this Cook
I was born in Calabria, Italy and was raised in Frankfurt, Germany. I have two children Patricia (30) & Christopher (24), two grandchildren (my daughter's children) Sydnee (girl) 10 & Aidyn (boy) 7. I love to cook for my family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
Traditional Italian & German meals. I also love to bake bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When my children and their family come to visit they always wont me to bake my HM pizza and baked ziti.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I cooked a Thanksgiving meal by myself, that was quite an accomplishment for me, do that we don't have Thanksgiving in Italy or Germany.

Tiramisu II
Great recipe! I only changed one thing, I used Coffee lacquer instead of rum. That made it much better for my test.

Strawberry (Jam!) Cream Cheese Frosting
I was looking for a pumpkin cream cheese frosting, when I came across this one. I substituted the jam with Libby's pure pumpkin and added some cinnamon, ground cloves, and nutmeg to it. It came out super creamy and delicious!!!!
